  • i use it to wash my toilet, floors, and bathtub and so on. i use just enough to make me satified, i guess. there's no right or wrong way, but you do got to mix it with a least a gallon of hot water

  • My toilet yes, I love it because then I don't have to scrub I just spray it from a squirt bottle leave it for 30 minutes or so and they're clean.

  • I don't use bleach for anything. It is an asthma trigger for me, as are most chemicals.

  • No, we don't use bleach in our house at all.

  • Absolutely not! ! - bleach contains sodium hypochlorite : a neurotoxin - can cause kidney and liver damage, severe lung damage and reproductive disorders - bleach can burn the skin, vapors irritate the nose, throat and lungs - vapors have been shown to interfere with brain function and to aggravate heart conditions and asthma. I have found natural, green products that are safe for you and the environment that work as well - if not better than bleach.
